The Bloom House is an infill house situated on a 35’x90’ lot with views of the Pacific Ocean.  The exterior is a box with a series of eyelet shaped windows with stainless steel trimming the outer edge of the windows.  The trim runs continuously along the east and west facades and turns the corners to the north and south facades where corner windows are located.

Across the length of this open space is a luminous fiberglass lantern attached to the ceiling.  Between the dining room and kitchen are 2 small curvilinear enclosures which contain the powder room and office.  In the living room, a wall bulges to define the fireplace.  Three bedrooms are located on the upper level along a spine of shaped walls.
